I have a demo mini-forex $3000 account with the following lots allocation logic:
vLots= Ceil(Balance * 3.0/10000)/10;
if vLots < 0.1 then vLots=lots;
if vLots > 1 then vLots=Ceil(vlots);
if vLots > 5 then vLots=5;
Keep getting this error in the journal:
05:05:33 '69451': order buy stop 0.10...
- what time does the time field in TickInfo struct represent ?
- is it possible to turn off pump so I can get historical data, then turn pump back on ?
- will MT4 servers be backward compatible w/ MT3 client ?
I am developing using the metatrader 3 api
Here's my question:
Say I have 10 1 unit buy positions. Then, say I want to perform 1 10 unit sell order.
Now, I need to enact 10 CloseByOrder(..,..) calls. How long do I need to wait between API calls, to avoid "too frequent requests" error...

I have to admit that MT3/MT4 are by far the best trading platforms I have ever tried. Too bad never got involved earlier, but it is never too late.
If it is not too much to ask, do you think in the future MT4's, it could also support P&F charting, including indicators to allow us to see when...
There's seems to be an error with in way that the Open Account dialog appears. I'm not saying that there's nothing wrong with it, it's just in terms of why it "should" appear. The problem is that it's appearing automatically when there's (no connection). The only reason, in my opinion,...
I am using FxDirectDealer is based on MT3. My expert advisor want to close the buy trade at the specific open price.
1. Does the CloseOrde have a return value on MT3? So we could know if the open order has been closed or not?
2. Can we CloseOrder with current market price?
3. If we...
I like the MetaTrader platform and have some ideas I want to program in, custom indicators and so on. Is MQL4 conceptually similar to other languages? I'm not a programmer, though I learned enough to do what I wanted to in MetaStock, but the MetaStock language is a lot different than the...
I have the fallowing code for a customized indicator. Basically, I found that it detects the end of micro-trends, before the price corrects itself. However, the only drawback is that since I have several loops, and I placed the indicator on a profile that has many charts on it, it takes a while to...
Just a question on the working of a trailing stop loss (TSL).
Do I need to be connected to the server for the TSL to execute? I have had three failed TSL's in the last two days. I execute a buy and set the TSL to 30 PIP. I shut down the PC overnight and the next morning, it had not executed...
Is there an advantage of this code or is it possible to say:
else (OrderType must bi OP_SELL)
Hello, is it possible to customize the metatrader client? we would like to put in some new functionality, like a new button where our customers get a different look - no charting, just signals, programmed in mlq. If this is impossible, is there any ability to get the interface discription how the...
Hey, Just a quick note to trading robot developers and system automators. I successfully wrapped the mtapi.dll (MetaTrader version 3.x API) ages ago for my own use, and now I'm happy to share my hard work for free. My wrapped MetaTrader v3.xx API for dotNet framework features:...
I am trying write an indicator that requires more than 8 buffers for counting. The indicator needs only 2 buffers for display, but more than 6 additional buffers are required for calculation. How do I allocate additional buffers for counting/calculation?
The DMI indicator in MetaTrader crosses and movement is not like DMI on TradeStation. The EasyLanguage code in TradeStation looks much differnet than the DMI code in MetaTrader4. Does anyone have ideas or code that mimics TradeStation DMI? Without this, I will not be able to use MetaTrader4 as my...
I've discussed this through the support email. But since english is not my native language , guess I didn't make it clear...
Anyway, please have a look at this:
In MT4, after I draw a trendline, say a Arrow Up, I can define on what timeframes it will show by changing "visualization"...
Ok. So I'm working on an expert advisor in MetaTrader 4. I left it running during the night only to find that no trades were placed. I reduced the code to only one line that executes the OrderSend function. Since then, and after reviewing the journal event logs, I found that I was running build...
I have the fallowing code:
int total = OrdersTotal();
for (int i = 0; i < total; i++)
if (OrderClosePrice() <= OrderStopLoss() + 0.0005)
OrderModify( OrderTicket(), NULL, Ask - 40 * Point, OrderTakeProfit(), 0, Aqua);...
is there a feature in metatrader that will automatically calculate and show me the pivot, support and resistance levels based on previous period price action? would be nice to have one implemented, thanks
I developed an indicator and it behaves strangely when changing the timeframe. Find below an indicator that behaves the same way.
In fact the indicator is ok in a given timeframe and while receiving live data. When changing timeframe, sometimes it continues to work properly and sometimes, the...
